Dennis Rodman and Potcoin: How Crypto Gatecrashed a Historic Summit

Wed Jun 13, 2018 7:05 pm

With all eyes on Singapore this week, was it any surprise crypto would make an appearance?

The historic summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea's Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un got the crypto community's attention – and held it – thanks to Dennis Rodman and the notorious cryptocurrency that funded his travel to Singapore, potcoin.

CoinDesk reported on June 7 that retired basketball star Dennis Rodman was headed to Singapore for the Summit with the help of the marijuana-themed cryptocurrency. As a celebrity who have visited North Korea several times, Rodman's trip was considered as "a celebrity twist" to the historical geopolitical event.

According to The Washington Post, Rodman was "in discussions with" the team behind potcoin last week to get financial support for the trip.
